Wishing on Willows Book Review

Wishing on Willows: A Novel by Katie Ganshert was my second book through Blogging for Books.  I was pretty excited to get my second book so quickly after the first when it showed up on my doorstep just a few days after getting the e-mail that it was coming in 7-10 days.

In this book, Robin Price is struggling to deal with her life as a cafe owner in a small town raising a three year old son by herself.  She is still dealing with the memories of her husband and is driven to help everyone going through the same pain as she endured.  When a new person walks into town, she finds that he is threatening to take away everything that she built to deal with her grief.  Ian is looking to build condos in the small town to bring employees of the new company to town in hopes of helping the economy and his struggling family business.  Robin is in a heated battle to save her restaurant and a local town ministry and finds herself drawn to Ian in ways she hasn't felt since she had lost her husband.  The book is a great small town story about the life of many friends in the town dealing with the battle of the depressed economy versus supporting a friend.  I hope that you check out the book to find out the great resolution, as well as the battles along the path!
